Seeking Stocking Ideas for a Cambodian Biotope Aquarium

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow aquarium enthusiasts,

I am embarking on an new project and could use your collective wisdom and experience. My next venture is to create a biotope aquarium that accurately represents Cambodia's rich aquatic ecosystems.

As we know, the key to a successful biotope aquarium lies in its authenticity – selecting the right flora, fauna, water conditions, and even the substrate to mimic the natural habitats as closely as possible. For this project, I'm particularly interested in sourcing fish species that are native to Cambodia.

I've a resource https://aquadiction.world/countries/cambodia/ which provides a list of species native to Cambodia. It's a good start, but I'd love to explore even more options. Do you know any other reliable resources that provide information on Cambodian freshwater fish species?

In addition, I would be grateful for any stocking ideas you might have. What combination of species would you recommend for a harmonious, sustainable Cambodian biotope setup? I'm open to all suggestions.

I look forward to hearing about your experiences and any advice you can share. I truly believe that the best part of our hobby is the community and the shared learning that comes from these discussions.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Best regards,

The usual source is https://www.fishbase.se/country/CountryChecklist.php?resultPage=2&what=list&trpp=50&c_code=116&sortby=alpha2&ext_CL=on&ext_pic=on&vhabitat=fresh


Pretty reliable. Not a bad selection either, a lot of interesting rasboras , some gobies, lot of channas (coldwater afaik), labeos, hey even some oryzias and both the sparkling gouramis!

I have the Indostomus paradoxus and i can only recommend them if you are willing to go the extra mile (live food, frequent feeding, max shrimp for companion )
